ENSENADA, B.C. Spanish investors are planning the construction of a mega-development for tourists in the grounds near Percebu Lagoon, in the northeast cost of Ensenada in waters from the High Gulf of California, just a few miles south of San Felipe.

He said that they’re currently in a pre-project phase and if they were to acquire all the permits for the authorities and meet all requirements and due diligences established by the Mexican authorities, they will proceed to direct inversion.
He said that there isn’t a specific amount for the investment, but there’s talk that it is a project that will be developed in the span of several years and different phases.
In the meeting, the city’s Major, expressed the support from his term for the arrival of investments to the region and offered to give all the necessary help to the Spanish Company as long as it keeps to the established regulations.
